  1. Very addicting--I couldn't put the controls down.
  2. Because of its wealth of game modes and many tricks, "MX 2002" has a long life span, so players who invest in the game will likely get a lot of bang for their buck.
  3. The great thing about MX 2002 is that it combines both of these kinds of gameplay--competitive racing and freestyle tricks--and does them both well.

    One part racing, one part freestyle and all parts addictive.

    The best motocross game I have ever played... It fuses realism with arcade styles beautifully and it opens up the once stodgy motocross sub-genre into a world of stunts, tricks and freestyle racing like no game ever has before it.
  6. Very solid overall and the bottom line is that it is extremely fun to play.
  7. Takes a little longer to get used to than your average motocross game, but the result is a deeper game that still has all the fun of a more arcadelike offering.

    As an arcade racer, it's very easy to play, but doesn't have the shortcuts and environment interaction that makes it a blast to play.
  9. A pretty, well-designed, stylish, and captivating piece of work that unfortunately suffers a bit with some distant and muted sound effects and less-than-engaging races.
  10. The graphics are the game’s strong point, with fluid character development and crisp backgrounds.
